Remarkably happy to see you.
Maybe you didn’t know you needed a dental care family. Maybe that’s because you’ve never had one before. You have one now with Edlund Dental.
Our office is filled with smiles all the time. We love working together, and each of us adds unique value to the team. We want you to feel comfortable and easy with all of us. We truly look forward to seeing our patients and catching up with them. With you!
Steven M. Edlund, DDS
As a kid growing up in Morris, MN, Dr. Edlund wanted to be a dentist. His family dentist was a kind, caring person who invited Steve to follow him for a day. By noon, Steve knew he had found his life’s work.
At Concordia College in Moorhead, and later at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, Dr. Edlund was treated to “amazing educators.” These dedicated instructors reinforced Steve’s natural love for problem solving, which allowed him to love the tough classes. Organic chemistry and Calculus were some of his favorite courses, in large part because of the wonderful teachers.
Dr. Edlund dreamed of having a practice that would allow him to know his patients well, and to work with entire families. In 2008, he purchased the practice of the retiring Dr. Kath, who had established it over 40 years ago. Dr. Kath is still a patient at Edlund Dental, and a favorite guest of the staff.
When he’s not in the office, Dr. Edlund lives in St. Paul’s lively Mac-Groveland area with his wife, Elisa. They enjoy their home and neighborhood. He bikes to work whenever possible, and appreciates the beautiful trails near the river.
But some of his best weekends, he says, are spent on the family farm in Morris, where he still participates in planting, harvesting and working the land. Home matters to Dr. Edlund. That’s why he wants his office to be a comfortable, pleasant “home” for his patients’ care.
Dr. Edlund is a member and sits on the Executive Council of the St. Paul Dental Society. He is also a member of the Minnesota Dental Association (MDA) and the American Dental Association (ADA).
Megan Welborn, DDS
Dr. Megan Welborn grew up in Iowa. She recently moved to the Mac-Groveland neighborhood with her husband. They are having a great time getting to know the area! She is happy to be joining her older sister who also lives in the Twin Cities area. It has made the transition to MN that much easier!
Dr. Welborn attended the University of Iowa for both her undergraduate and her doctorate degrees. Megan has always excelled at both math and science but is very pleased with how the dental profession enables her to incorporate her love of art into her job. She thoroughly enjoys and welcomes the opportunity to care for the smiles of her patients and their families.
When not in the office Dr. Welborn can be found running and biking in the beautiful Mac-Grove neighborhood. When not doing something outdoors, Dr. Welborn and her husband enjoy trying new pubs and restaurants.
Dawn grew up in St. Paul’s Frogtown neighborhood. She has been working in the dental field for over 30 years. She started as a licensed dental assistant and then to the front office.

She helps people navigate insurance plans, understand treatments and costs, and make decisions about their dental care. Dawn says, “we take such pride in our work! Dr. Edlund is a perfectionist, and it shows in his results. Here, you are not just another set of teeth!”
